Photo: Estrada Hits Carson, Promises War With Figueroa

Daniel "Tremendo" Estrada has traveled over along with his manager, Carlos Rosales, to Los Angeles for Saturday's fight against the WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa from Texas. The Showtime televised contest will be in the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Daniel is dedicating this fight to his sister and niece, who recently died, following a car accident. He said:

"I'll leave my heart in the ring. I have waited a long time for this opportunity and now is the moment to take advantage of this chance." Daniel's impressive record is: 32-2-1, with 24 knockouts.

"I have been waiting for this opportunity for almost a year. I've been the mandatory challenger for a while, but for some reason I couldn't get the fight for the title. Now the opportunity is here and I am very positive I will become a World Champion on August 16."

His manager Rosales explained that  "Tremendo" is about to reach the zenith of the lightweight category making weight will not be any problem. He insists that Estrada is in excellent physical condition. That's just one reason why the whole team is very confident of returning to Mexico with the WBC crown.
